Not only am I a home-improvement enthusiast, I’m also a tech head. When tools and technology collide it sends me into DIY utopia. We have all experienced those trips to the home improvement store, trying to explain to an associate the project we’re working on with nothing more than a piece of paper showing a somewhat-to-scale sketch and measurements. You may have a few photos on your phone to help explain what your working on. But, wouldn’t it be nice if you could take a snapshot of an object and include the dimensions with it on your smart phone? Well, your in luck.
SIS Software has developed an app, My Measures and Dimensions, that does just that and much more. This app also lets you include notes about your project superimposed directly on a photo. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a picture with dimensions and project notes is priceless. You can take as many photos as you need and organize them within the app by adding folders for each project. Sharing your project photos with others is simple. You can email, save to a photo library or print directly from My Measures and Dimensions.
The app is compatible with the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. It can be downloaded in three different versions. Which version you choose is dependent on your needs and expertise. My Measures LITE is free. The perfect price for anyone’s project budget. My Measures and Dimensions can be downloaded for $2.99 and My Measures and Dimensions Pro for $5.99. Any version of the app would be a great Christmas gift for that special DIYer in your life. Another great DIY app is the powerOne Construction Calculator by Infinity Softworks.
